Rory McIlroy is expected to return to competitive golf the first week of March at the WGC-Mexico Championship, and he appears to be healing well from rib stress fracture that forced his withdraw from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.

On Sunday, McIlroy was back on the course playing with none other than U.S. President Donald Trump. While the image above also shows former New York Yankee outfielder Paul O’Neill and Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer, the foursome was actually rounded out by Nick Mullen and Rich Levine.
According to NoLayingUp, the most reliable source for Rory McIlroy news these days, McIlroy played from the forward tees but he did hit some drivers. He also said his swing was “nearly at full speed” based on TrackMan numbers.
For those wondering about Trump’s game, Rory told NoLayingUp that “[Trump] probably shot around 80. He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70’s!”
